Following up on the work of the Tlaxcala Coordination Group, the CEO of Petróleos Mexicanos, Carlos Treviño Medina, and the governor of the State, Marco Antonio Mena Rodríguez, held a meeting to exchange information and agree on a series of strategic actions aimed towards stopping fuel theft in the state.
Tlaxcala is one of the states that has stepped up deployment to fight this crime, in addition to increasing the number of patrols and surveillance of the pipeline system using state-of-the-art technology.
Likewise, the coordination between the federal, state and municipal authorities has been tightened, using a strategy that covers all the links in the criminal chain, while simultaneously focusing on the analysis and follow-up of sales in service stations, with the purpose of ending illegal fuel sales.
The raids carried out by Pemex Security personnel with Military, Federal Police and State Police support, as well as support from municipal corporations, resulted in the detection and shutdown of 52 illegal syphonings in the state during the first two months of the year.
The Pemex CEO and the governor of Tlaxcala agreed that they need to maintain the current pace of their coordinated efforts to put an end to organized crime.
Both officials condemned the violence that recently claimed the lives of two municipal police officers in Tlaxcala, and they appealed to the public to anonymously report any information relevant to these crimes at the following toll-free phone number 01-800-228-9660.
The coordinated actions between Pemex and the government of Tlaxcala are part of the Integrated Plan against fuel theft that has been set in motion by the Mexican Government and local governments.
